Goodbye

Are we watching the last days of Claudio Ranieri's Leicester City reign? From champions of England to fear of relegation in the space of a few months. 

That's it from me. Many thanks for your company. Until next time...

'We won't stick our head in sand'

Leicester 0-3 Man Utd

Leicester's Christian Fuchs has just fronted up to the television cameras, telling BBC Sport: "We keep our heads high, we have to fight as a team and give everything until the last game. 

"We have to stick together, fight for every inch on the field. We are not there to stick our head in the sand, we want to fight back."

'We needed the points'

Leicester 0-3 Man Utd

More from Jose Mourinho, speaking to BBC Sport: "It was really important for us. We lost two points in last match at home and had three consecutive draws so we needed the points.

"I am happy. We don't have a league defeat since October and if we tried to transform the unlucky draws to victories, we would be in an amazing position."

'Give Ranieri a break'

#bbcfootball

Jules Bohm: Give Ranieri a break. He gave Leicester fans something that should never have happened in their lifetime. #legend

Raj Dollar: LCFC league win was no way a fluke. Played the best football, whole squad worked hard for each other. All that's disappeared.

Tommex: What Leicester City did last season was all luck. Back to reality this season. Hope they don't sack Ranieri.

Mourinho backs Ranieri

Leicester 0-3 Man Utd

Jose Mourinho, speaking to Sky Sports about Claudio Ranieri's future: "He is the Fifa coach of the year. That is deserved. His work will be in the history of football for many years.

“People will remember him and Leicester and that deserves respect.

“It doesn’t matter if this season is difficult for them. Champions League is new for them. It is difficult. I am sure they are going to get enough points to get their stability.”

'Players happy with me'

Leicester 0-3 Man Utd

More from Claudio Ranieri: "We're together. I'm happy with the players and they're happy with me. We have to stay together and keep fighting."

'Anxious'

Leicester 0-3 Man Utd

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri, speaking to BBC Sport: "We have to score, play together and never give up. 

"It is important now to get the confidence. Last season everything was right and the players got confidence, now they are anxious. We need to react every time."

'We keep fighting'

Leicester 0-3 Man Utd

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho: "I think we played like we normally play. We played well and tried to win. They were a difficult team but that is something we are used too."

On the battle for the top four: "I don't look to others. If we had beat Hull and drawn with Leicester, they are still positive points. 

"We drew with Hull and beat Leicester. We are still in the same position but we are closer to the others so we keep fighting."

'Terrible, embarrassing'

Leicester 0-3 Man Utd

Strong words from Leicester keeper Kasper Schemichel, who says everyone at the club needs to "stand up and be counted" otherwise they are going down.

He tells Sky Sports: "First 40 minutes we played OK then after that unacceptable. It is not good enough and sums our season up at the moment. 

"Let's not talk about last season. It's gone. We need to stand up and be counted. There are a lot of factors that go into it but this season has not been good right from the start. 

"I am not commentating on newspaper speculation. I know what is going on in the dressing room, we are a group of players low on confidence but not low on fight. It is not a comfortable situation. It has been terrible, embarrassing. 

"It is time for each one of us - from the top to the bottom of this club - to be counted. If we don't we will be relegated."

'Lucky to stay on'

Leicester 0-3 Man Utd

Juan Mata on his challenge on Jamie Vardy: "I was late. I tried to reach the ball. I didn't want to hurt him. I was probably a bit lucky there."

Player reaction

Leicester 0-3 Man Utd

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata: "The first was an incredible goal and after we played very good and scored twice more. We are happy today because today we took the chances.

Henrik Mkhitaryan, who scored United's first goal: "We prepared before the game that if it doesn't work with two strikers to change formation and that is what we did.

"It was not something new for us. In many games we have changed easily. We did good after the (formation) change. We have been trying to have more chances and to score more and it worked."

Jose Mourinho has just turned up for his TV interview. I'm guessing he won't walk out of this one.

Storm clouds gathering

Leicester are in massive trouble. Them and Crystal Palace are in free-fall.

They were in the game for 40 minutes but after Huth's error in the first half they went to pieces.

United came out after the break, scored through Mata and then it was men against boys. It's a big win for United but Leicester are really looking at relegation this season if they don't liven up.

Right behind Liverpool

Leicester 0-3 Man Utd

It's now 15 Premier League games unbeaten for sixth-placed Manchester United, who move one point behind fifth-placed Liverpool. Eight of those 15 games have been wins.

I can't feel sorry for Leicester as not many fans will witness their side win the Premier League but equally it would be a shame for them to go down after what they did last season.

How much was Mahrez valued at last season? 

If you had flown in from the moon you would say he was the worst player on the pitch.

YELLOW CARD

Leicester 0-3 Man Utd

A silly booking for David de Gea as the United keeper tries to run down the clock. Understandable at 1-0 but 3-0? 

Moments later Paul Pogba forces Kasper Schmeichel into a neat save. Leicester cannot wait for the final whistle.

Gray Jones: Give Ranieri the Sevilla games as a thank you for last season. He at least deserves that finale.

11 Jamen: Ranieri got Jose sacked last year by beating Jose. Jose is trying to return the favour.

Jay: Fluke or not - Ranieri won Leicester the title. The least he deserves is some loyalty and support from the club & 'fans'

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 0-3 Man Utd

Another delicious move by United. Antonio Valencia lays it on a plate for Henrikh Mkhitaryan but he lifts it high over the bar. Should have done better.

Ashley Young has come on for the closing stages in place of Marcus Rashford.

A number of Leicester fan have seen enough. They're heading to the exits as United's fans chant "going down" in their direction.

'D-Day approaching'

Next three games for Leicester - Swansea, Liverpool and Hull. If they lose those, how can Ranieri keep his job?

It is a business. There is no room for sentiment. They are a team down on the slippery slope. You can see hope will Hull, Swansea and Sunderland.

Leicester 0-3 Man Utd

Vital challenge by Christian Fuchs prevents Henrikh Mkhitaryan from making it four. It's only a matter of time. United are finishing strongly.

'Big influence'

Mata has had a big influence on the game and scored a terrific third goal.

You could argue he was lucky to stay on the pitch for that reckless challenge.

Taz Bartowski: I do love Ranieri. We'll also probably name a street after him and erect a statue but...someone call Pearson for a third spell!

C Li: Ranieri never replaced Kante and is paying the price for it. It's easier to win the title than retain it.

Kyle: Absolute idiots those saying Ranieri should be sacked. People have such short memories. Ranieri will not be sacked. 

Leicester 0-3 Man Utd

A roar goes up from Manchester United's travelling fans as Marouane Fellaini gets ready to come on. Juan Mata is the man to make way and he's getting a well deserved ovation from the fans in red.

Fluke?

Gerard Hennessy: Mr Ranieri really is a lovely man but I'm afraid last year really was just a very fortunate fluke. No way back now.

Crunch time against Swansea?

Is it conceivable for Ranieri to be sacked? They just don't look like scoring a goal. I think we will learn a lot when they play Swansea next.

Leicester 0-3 Man Utd

This is a thoroughly professional job by United. They're doing the nasty jobs so well. Riyad Mahrez delivers another cross into the penalty area but Antonio Valencia is there to mop up and launch another swift attack. Too comfortable for the visitors.

'Change is needed'

#bbcfootball

Tom West: I love Ranieri, but we'll go down with him. Needed creative cm in the window. No clue who could come in, but change is needed.

Leicester 0-3 Man Utd

It was this time last season that people started taking Leicester seriously after beating Manchester City 3-1 at the Etihad. How quickly things change. The Foxes are playing like a team heading for relegation.

Vardy is too isolated for Leicester. 

They have so many bodies behind the ball but it just keeps on coming back.

Incredible. A long ball is pumped into the Leicester area and everyone has stopped running.. except Juan Mata. It's not off side. Mata gets in a tangle and the chance is gone.

An hour gone. Leicester, who have not scored a league goal for 490 minutes, have had one shot on target.

Paul Pogba is booked for a cynical challenge on Wilfred Ndidi 20 yards out. Pogba protests his innocence. Nice try. Up steps Riyad Mahrez. And that's close. Just wide.
